MEN'S 501® ORIGINAL FIT JEANS
LEVI’S® 501® JEANS FOR MEN
In 1873, Levi Strauss created the first ever pair of blue jeans with copper rivet reinforcements: the Levi’s® 501® Original. These jeans were created to serve workers who moved out to the American West and needed sturdy, durable pants. 501® Original Fit Jeans have been worn by generations, defining style for decades. Since we invented it in 1873, the 501® Original has been a blank canvas for self-expression. Throughout the years, our these jeans have been worn by miners, punks, rockabillies, and pop stars. They’re made with an iconic straight fit and the signature button fly for an authentic look and feel. Featuring classic denim 5-pocket construction for style and convenience, the 501® Original sits at the waist and is regular through the thigh with a straight leg. It can be worn with a clean rolled hem or full length, whichever you prefer. These jeans look especially great with a Levi’s® Trucker Jacket and a simple crewneck tee for a classic all-American look. Pair Levi's® 501® jeans for men with a Western-inspired plaid shirt for a casual aesthetic.
